Vinchu Kata - Review

A narrow fortified region in the Lohgarh fort, Vinchu Kata literally means Scorpion’s sting. The natural formation due to the fissure of lava has resulted into the finger like projection of rocks and the peak of the terrain is a must-visit.

A hiking trail from Vinchu Kata takes you to Visapur fort and is adorned by lush green forests and fantastic view of the valley.

Vinchu Kata, Lonavala Reviews

  • Really Good Destination to chill n relax. Anyone one can Visit This fort Even child too. Trekking is Safe as stairs are there to climb Upto the main Door of fort. Main Door will Open At 7.00AM.

  • Really amazing place But the way to here and back to the fort is quite danger. But no worries rallying are there for the safety. Views form here is great.

  • Went there in summer. It is a good place. Take left path while moving forward.

  • Nice place to hangout but go before 5:30 generally they close gates at 5 and the people inside are taken out before 6

  • From bottom of it he mountain it seems to be the tail of a scorpion thus it is called as vinchu kada (scorpion end) . Most attractive point of the lohgad fort and challenging also. Entire lonavla hill valley is able to see from this point. Nice site for adventurous photo session. Some remains of old fort can also be seen at the end point.
